Eurosport to Broadcast Women’s Classic Final
The final of the WLBS Paul Hunter Women’s Classic will be broadcast live via the Eurosport Player for the first time this Sunday.
Won last year by reigning world women’s champion Ng On Yee, the event marks the start of the 2017/18 World Women’s Snooker Tour and sees the best women players in the sport return to Fuerth, Germany hoping to capture the title.
In a landmark move for Eurosport and women’s snooker, Sunday’s climax to the event will be available to watch live on the Eurosport Player from 1:00pm CET, with full commentary provided by former professional world number 3 Neal Foulds.
WLBS President Mandy Fisher said: “This is fantastic news for women’s snooker and another significant step in the development of our sport. Eurosport have made a huge contribution to snooker in recent years and I am delighted that snooker fans will now have the opportunity to watch this year’s final in Germany using their Player service.”
The group stages (view latest results) of the tournament are already underway, with 14 qualifiers set to join the top two seeds Reanne Evans and Ng On Yee in the knockout rounds.
